Open Question

I have a paslode model 5350/90 S PM which will not fire. When you hook up the air supply the air is flowing freely through the gun and out the exhaust at the top. Is this a seal or o-ring issue?

Stuart - this sounds like an air problem - you should perform the following test. With the air nailer close to the compressor you must monitor the airpressure after the gun fires. it sounds like the air is not gettting through diapram fast enough or there is a blockage in line. Blockage in line is not suspected for the following reason . It sounds like the air hose is holding enough air to fire 2-4 nails and then you must wait for the line to fill up again and then it fires ok. The pressure regulator out to the line controls this and they do fail. try this test and report back to me - I know I can solve this for you as I have extensive background in compressor and the like.

SOURCE: paslode t250 f16 leaks air from the cap difuser

The most common problem with this nailer is the plastic seal that sits on top of the cylinder. This seal (ususlly white, yellow or black in color ) will cause the nailer to leak lots of air out top of gun. Examine seal for cracks and replace as necessary; the part number is 402725 and is available at www.toolpartsdirect.com This should stop the rapid air leak. After installing the new seal, if you have a very small constant leak out top of the gun then remove the screw holding the headvalve in place and check for small scratches where the orings contact headvalve. Use very fine sandpaper (300 to 400 grit) to remove scratches. Clean and re-use the same orings using silicone grease instead of oil and re-assemble. This should stop all leaks. Silicone grease is available at Lowes lumber in the plumbing department. It is used to lube orings in faucets. If you have more questions about this gun please email, Good Luck

SOURCE: paslode fixing gun has stopped firing

Do you have gas cylinder in,if so is gas expiration date on bottom of cannister,change gas to current fresh date. Also open nose of nailer and see if a fastner has logged ,remove and push plunger pin back into body,be sure to remove battery during these tests.

SOURCE: Paslode nail gun 325 black not firing

Any time these guns become intermittent or stop firing but the fan still runs, the first the to check is the expiration date on the gas cartridges. The do expire and this will make the gun work inconsistently or not at all.

SOURCE: Paslode (30 degrees) framing gun firing pin not retracting

The tool needs to be completely torn down, cleaned out, two orings inside need replaced, re-lubed and re-assembled. takes a technician about 1 hour to do it right. I believe either the orings or dirt is your problem. If blade doesn't return its probably the orings.

Paslode framing nailer: compressor powered, hisses but will not shoot nails, appears to be in the sliding mechanizism that touches the wood first before it will shoot, help


I've used paslode for years and whenever there was a "hiss" of air and no fire- it was o-rings- When were the o-rings changed last? And how do you know they are in 'good shape'? You can't tell by just looking at them. If that isn't the problem then I can't help. Just as an aside- do you oil the gun (down the air intake nipple) every time you use it? Lack of oil will wear out o-rings fast. Sorry if this isn't overly helpfull but most gun problems are o-ring or seal related unless you've worn out or damaged a mechanical part.

Paslode framer when you depress trigger there no resistance and it does not fire


Paslode framer has a lever inside of trigger that may be bent or missing. Easy to check. Remove air line and nails. Remove trigger by pulling pin. Check under trigger for missing parts. Test gun by connecting to air and place nose of gun against wood or hard rubber and then depress firing pin. If gun fires then problem is with lever under trigger or safety mechanism which is in two parts. Check safety for bent or broken piece, usually upper part will be missing lip that actually pushes on the lever. If however gun does not fire when firing pin is depressed, time for replacing orings in gun. Parts are available at www.toolpartsdirect.com . Good luck with your repair and post again if you have other questions.

My paslode keeps flashing green red after it fires once. I have checked the wiring and all seems fine. The trigger and contact switch are both working but when it sparks once it cuts out


is the fan working? if you have the tool partially disassembled and it seems that you know what you are doing you can fire the tool in this position to check for the entire function. When was the last time cleaned? To fire and test motor connect the head assembly back up laying to side so fan can turn freely then push trigger fan should come on and run for a matter of seconds, next depresss the safety switch and then trigger to get gun to fire, look at spark for crisp action, fan should be on and again run for a few. If not then you have a problem with either fan or spark unit. You can go to Paslode.com and type in your model and they have a troubleshooting guide in the manual that might help.

Paslode air framer not sinking some nails


Your air pressure is dropping everytime you fire. It sound like your compressor is not cutting back in untill it to low. Not giving your tool enough continuess pressure. Your compressor cut in pressure should be around 90-100psi no less. and your max. pressure no more then 120psi. (Make sure your regulator is set at 110psi)
good luck...!

Paslode 1st fix gun .battery fully charged and placed into gun.the light flashes green and the gun will fire once after which the light flashes red and the gun will not fire.any ideas.i have tryed other...


I would look at the fuel cell on the bottom is a expiration date and they will not fire older fuel. Also do you remove the battery and it does the same thing? When you depress the safety on the work can you hear the fan motor? You say the tool is clean does it have enough lube to move all items freely. Just a couple thoughts, Also look at the spark plug wire for being broke or coming out of the spark unit. Let me know and we will go into this deeper.

Paslode framing nailer 1998 yr. model when engaged wont fire


you have spark and cleaned tool correct, but fan won't turn that freely, if so the fan motor is bad, it should come on when you pull the trigger or move the roller lever for the safety. The fan is about 80.00 Let me know if I missed something and how did you check the spark?

Paslode cordless framing nailer model 325 (black)


the fan is what returns the valve in the chamber, whilst it may have been lubed it must be spotless in the chamber. Use paslode gun cleaner a clean cloth and the handle of a wooden spoon or similar and clean all residue and grime out of chamber and re lube. Or you just have a dead tool that was used for parts! good luck
